True, true. I have spent a lot of time in my life, planning and plotting. Sometimes my plans work out, sometimes they don't. At this point, I am realizing, those plans that didn't work out were for the best.
Don't make the mistake of settling for good, leaving no room for the best. It is only when I finally surrendered to God, things really change for the better.
My life today, looks nothing like what I planned. I must say it is better. If you looked from the outside you may not see it, but from inside me, I feel glorious. My mind has changed about a lot of things. One thing I do know is I have no control over anything except my attitude.
Today what it's important to do the next right thing, help others, getting over myself and allowing the joy in. I have found, when I take on the task at hand a loving spirit, I have peace. On my last birthday, I was overwhelmed with the love that came my way. When I told my husband how I felt, he said, you're getting back, what you give out.
Now don't get the idea that I'm not selfish and have my times of pouting. The difference today is, I can see it for what it is. A tantrum. It's easier to give myself a talking to and change my attitude than ever before.
Sometimes what we want is not what's good for us. God can see around the bend, I cannot. So, I am trusting Him with my future, staying grateful for my present and let go of the past. Fantasizing freedom from staying stuck on what I want.
